>G7 agrees on global minimum tax rate
G7同意设全球最低企业税

The Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations have agreed to support new rules that will achieve a global minimum tax rate of at least 15%, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Saturday.
美国财政部长珍妮特•耶伦6月5日表示,七国集团(G7)已达成协议,支持将全球最低企业税率设定为至少15%。

Calling it a "significant, unprecedented" commitment, Yellen said in a statement that the global minimum tax would end the race-to-the-bottom in corporate taxation, and ensure fairness for the middle class and working people in the US and around the world.
耶伦在一份声明中说,全球最低企业税率这一"重大且史无前例的"承诺将终止企业税的逐底竞争,确保美国和世界各地的中产阶级和劳动人民得以公平对待。

"G7 finance ministers today, after years of discussions, have reached a historic agreement to reform the global tax system, to make it fit for the global digital age," UK Finance Minister Rishi Sunak announced in a video statement on Saturday.

The British Treasury, meanwhile, said in a statement that the principle of at least 15% global minimum corporation tax creates a more level playing field for British firms and cracks down on tax avoidance.
与此同时,英国财政部在一份声明中说,15%的全球最低企业税率为英国企业创造了更公平的竞争环境,同时还打击了避税行为。
